Color Crush: Dazzling Blue

Pantone, the authority on color, recently announced that Dazzling Blue is the color of choice for spring 2014.  Described as a "preppy shade of cobalt," Dazzling Blue was seen all over the 4 major fashion weeks.  In fact, it was featured in a total of 29 shows. Personally, I find it a welcomed change from the usual dainty pastels and floral patterns we see for spring.  It's going to be a bold start to the year, my friends.  I love the hue in interiors, and a few of my favorite designers apparently love it too:

{Amanda Nisbet}

 {Lilly Bunn Weekes}

{Amanda Nisbet}

{Sally Wheat Interiors}

And how chic is this lacquered cobalt blue storefront in Paris?!


Just in case you'd like to bring in the hue to your wardrobe or decor, here are my favorite finds in hues similar to Dazzling Blue...

  6. I'm loving that blue is so in right now! It's one of my favorites. I just picked up a couple of tops in blue, and we have decided to paint our office a very deep blue, with white trim. I can't wait to see how it turns out! :)
